Prey 2: 'No Update' From Bethesda
Bethesda declines to comment on recent developer claims sci-fi shooter Prey 2 is 'in limbo'.
Published on Oct 17, 2012
Prey 2's future remains open to speculation following Bethesda's assertion that it has no status update on the Human Head game.
Rumours of cancellation swirled back in April, with publisher Bethesda eventually confirming that "development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned."
Human Head Studios' designer Nathan Cheever recently tweeted that the project is "only in limbo", but told fans on the Prey 2 Facebook page: ""With a lot of talent and determination, the team at Human Head created an exciting and vibrant game experience for you. If you want to know about the status of the game, find other ways to contact Bethesda more directly."
Cheever added: "My impression is they don't read this Facebook page as much as they use to, since your sincere interest has gone unanswered over the past year."
We contacted Bethesda's marketing and PR boss Pete Hines for a response and he told NowGamer: "I don't have any updated info on Prey 2. We'll let folks know when we do."
So, far from conclusive, but Bethesda's recent schedule has been busy of late with Skyrim and Dishonored.
If Prey 2 has a hope of launching in 2013, we'd expect a re-reveal at some point followed by the usual, extensive marketing push - meaning it's probably quite a fw months out at best.
